Thanks for the quick review on these. I used the coupon you found, plus they had $5 shipping on all orders so I got 2 cases for $60 shipped! Can't beat that. Now to fab up brackets to fit them to my Wee racks.

The boxes are damn nice for the under $30 I spent on them. Quad latches, decent hinges, nice gasket, and the damn things are fully foam lined. Pretty good deal if you ask me. I even managed to drop one from about 3' onto my concrete garage floor and it did not crack. It hit on the corner and i was expecting the worst after it was sitting in sub 10 degree weather all day, but it came away with nary a scratch. Looking forward to building some mounting brackets for the Killer.....

They aren't Pelican's, but considering that the Pelican phone case cost as much as these do, i think they are a good value. I need to figure out some sort of net or something so my stuff doesn't fall out when I open them.

I've eaten at the one in Westerville/Polaris maybe a half dozen times and have never had an issue with service. I just kinda think it's a little expensive for what you get, but part of the price is to pay for the trendiness.....

well, you know how it is...an unhappy customer is 1000 times more likely to tell people about it than a happy customer is...always have to take those reviews with a grain of salt

Looking at 2007 R1200GS's right now.
How about a 2007 GSA?

I'm sure I will have questions along the way. Thanks!

As far as replacing the rear tire often... that's why I drive 30+ year old cars that cost about 1/13 the price of this bike.

I dropped the klr on one already (kickstand in the mud) seems to be ok.
